Bookshop Santa Cruz and the Humanities Institute of UC Santa Cruz Present: Laurie Halse Anderson for SHOUT
Bookshop Santa Cruz welcomes New York Times bestselling, award-winning author Laurie Halse Anderson for a discussion and signing of her new book, SHOUT, a searing poetic memoir for the #MeToo era. This offsite event is cosponsored by The Humanities Institute UC Santa Cruz, and will take place at Cowell Ranch Hay Barn on the UCSC campus.  

Laurie Halse Anderson is known for the unflinching way she writes about, and advocates for, survivors of sexual assault. In 1999, her groundbreaking, award-winning novel Speak opened the door for a national dialogue about rape culture and consent. Now, twenty years later, she reveals her personal history as a rape survivor in a searing poetic memoir, SHOUT, on sale March 12, 2019.

In free verse, Anderson shares reflections, rants, and calls to action woven between deeply personal stories from her life that shes never written about before. Searing and soul-searching, devastating and triumphant, SHOUT is a denouncement of our society's failures and a love letter to all the people with the courage to say #MeToo and #TimesUp, whether aloud, online, or only in their own hearts.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
  • This event is for mature audiences only; children under 13 will not be admitted.

  • Attendees must purchase a copy of SHOUT from Bookshop Santa Cruz either in store or at the event to enter the signing line.


Laurie Halse Anderson is a New York Times bestselling author whose writing spans young readers, teens, and new adults. Combined, her books have sold more than 8 million copies.
